Sister Justina Marie Miller OSF Scholarship
The Sister Justina Marie Miller OSF Scholarship is awarded at 8th Grade Graduation to one 8th Grade Young Woman and one 8th Grade Young Man who seek a Catholic High School Education.
This scholarship was established in Sister Justina Marie Miller's honor. Sister Justina was a former principal who devoted 22 years of leadership and education to St. Mary of the Lakes School.
Recipients of this award must demonstrate examples of Courage, Responsiblity, a Spirit of Volunteerism and a Pleasant Manner. These are qualities that Sister Justina felt define our St. Mary of the Lakes School Students and the values that the St. Mary of the Lakes School teachers strive to teach. Recipients are selected by the 7th and 8th grade teachers, and approved by the School Principal.
Each Recipient is given a monetary scholarship award to the Catholic High School they will attend, as well as a plaque engraved with their name. Recipient names are also engraved on a special School Plaque which hangs in our school.
The funds for this award are generated by fundraisers sponsored by the St. Mary of the Lakes School PTA.
